I was up before the roosters today, literally. I'm excited because it is my 21st wedding anniversary.
Hubby and I are starting the day out with a picnic breakfast at the balloon fest in Colorado Springs. We'll probably stay for the concert which, believe it or not, starts at 8:30.
The next stop is Old Colorado City. What a great place to window shop and pick up some anniversary souveniers. Farmer's market is there, too, so of course we will take advantage. Besides, I have to buy a Rocky Ford watermelon for the dessert I am making later. I think a splurge on Colorado palisade peaches is in order, as well.
Next, up into the mountains for us. Another picnic. Lunch next to a bubbly mountain creek. Hiking to the spot works up an appetite. Maybe even pick some wild berries if the bears left any.
Hubby is making a special dinner of elk and grilled veg. While he's busy with that, I'll be busy making my watermelon cakelets. Layers of angel food cake & watermelon rings. Outside whipped cream, berries, kiwi and shaved chocolate.
I had originally planned for a splurge day, but looking at the activities and meals it may turn out to be one of the healthiest days of August!
(I'll try to get pics to post on another blog)
